Bell Atlantic DACS failure 280 T3s

Bell Atlantic lost another DACS yesterday taking out 280 T3s for 3-1/2 hours
in the northeastern corridor and New York City.

I'm not a transmission person, but what is the problem with DACS?  Why
do these "highly reliable" systems fail in such catastrophic ways?
